guys tonight here in danville, kentucky. dan senor is the senior adviser to congressman paul ryan and a foreign policy adviser to the romney campaign. mr. senor, great to see you. you've done a lot of mock debates. you know the vice president is going to talk a lot about the ryan budget, but we know the ryan budget is not all the romney budget. how much does he defend his own budget versus the romney ticket? >> first of all, he has to make the case about the choice in this election. things have been rough over the last four years, and it's incumbent on president obama and vice president biden to explain what exactly has happened over the last four years. 23 million americans out of work. 47 million americans on food stamps. 1 in 6 americans in poverty. and have them explain the rationratio rationale for why they deserve a second term. there's a choice in this election. they are running on the romney-ryan agenda. governor romney has laid out a plan, laid out the five-point plan for the middle class. >> when there are differences, what does congressman ryan say? this is my budget. t
to do. >> this morning, romney's senior foreign policy advisor dan senor said his candidate would not rule out negotiations. >> it's got to be a comprehensive strategy. we should utilize a range of tools in our tool kit in achieving that diplomatic outcome. >> he would sit down for bilateral talks? >> his approach is we have to reach a diplomatic solution. he will not rule out any of these tools. let me be clear. as president he's going to have to assess the situation and make a judgment, what's the best way to get there. >> joining us from washington, former state department spokesman, p.j. crowley and here on set, msnbc contributor jonathan capehart of "washington post" and "new york times" magazine editor, mr. sunday morning himself, hugo lindgren. p.j., please give us some clarity and some answers here because i am so confused. as far as iran, the fact that dan senor is saying governor romney might not rule out one-on-one negotiations with the iranians over the nuclear program seems to have muddied the waters which are muddy already over what a mitt romney foreign policy strat
voters by, quote, hugging some of the president's policies? romney adviser dan senor was asked this morning about the difference between the candidates on iran on "morning joe." >> i think it's a shift from -- >> hold on. this is important. he has always said the military option should be looked at over and over. the military option should be the option of last resort. i think this is like splitting hair. the reality is governor romney has been laying out this it strategy for years. >> and that was on the topic of just iran, but as you saw there, the president just landing or that's mitt romney i should say landing. both men are in boca raton. john hileman had a little fun of governor romney's expense regarding what we might see tonight. >> i'm mitt romney, and i'm running in the middle. i'm running in the middle. >> running in the middle has hileman tried to mime him. the president arrived in florida only moments ago had a 15-point lead and some of the polls on foreign policy. that gap has now closed to four points. the president's biggest challenge tonight could be the ongoin
good. >> now, mr. ryan was prepped for his debate by senior foreign policy adviser dan senor who worked for president bush from the invasion of iraq in 2003. does it not sound a little rich to you that this man attacks the current administration for communication failures when he's the same individual who sold the country bogus claims about weapons of mass destruction and was known to lie about conditions in iraq in order to support the re-election of george bush? >> it is astounding that one would have the nerve to even utter the words conspiracy and, you know, the types of things that these republicans are trying to do, but this is what they do, martin. we saw another contradiction here where we had mr. isa talking about and criticizing the president and saying we needed to have more security, and he himself voted in 2009 to get rid of 300 embassy security positions, and over the last two budgets the republican congress has cut some $500 billion from the request of the president for embassy security and for facilities. and so, you know, i've called on chairman isa to the join me, and

and i was very interested to see the discussion that dan senor, his foreign policy advisor, was having in the spin room last night. dan senor was literally spinning around the room trying to explain what was a very new policy proposal from the romney/ryan side on afghanistan. >> you also got a name check from paul ryan which i will play you now. >> when it comes to our veterans, we owe them a great debt of gratitude for what they've done for us, including your son, beau. but we also want to make sure that we don't lose the things we fought so hard to get. >> flattering that you got a name there and it was all well-intentioned. paul ryan seemed to suggest there could be more, not less activity in afghanistan which may concern many americans, who believe that basically, rather like with iraq, the afghanistan conflict was coming to an end and with it the loss of life to american military and also the huge financial cost. if the republicans were to win and actually put more troops in afghanistan, what would that do, do you think, to the morale of the military? >> the military does what it'
was attached by a three-foot-long invisible bungee cord to paul ryan? he is dan senor, paul ryan's top staffer on the romney/ryan campaign, also the george w. bush administration iraq war spokesman in baghdad. that is who is heading up the paul ryan part of the romney/ryan campaign. senor also sits on the board of directors as something called the foreign policy initiative. they've got four people on their board. one is dan senor. two of the other four people are special advisers to the romney campaign. these guys. and yesterday that group headed by the top staffer to paul ryan and two other romney/ryan advisers called for an american war in syria. you ready for another american war in the middle east? this is a presidential campaign that neither side wants to be about foreign policy. even president obama does not want that because there are hard questions to be asked of him about why we're still in afghanistan and the kill list and drone strikes and all the rest. but the romney/ryan campaign has not been capable of asking those questions. they haven't even bothered to come up with a legible p
dan senor. do you believe the president's policies in libya, in egypt, in iran, for example, and in israel, do you believe that those policies have gone astray, away or have not just worked out? >> it's very interesting because governor romney has said he wants policies that are linked to our values. i think president obama in terms of u.s. policy and encouraging mubarak to step aside, encouraging ben ali to step aside, likewise the fine line between dictatorship and democracy will take decades. there will be steps forward and backwards along the path. i think what i heard dan say, and i hope he wasn't meaning that, to say that the policy sun raveling, we want to move back towards dictatorship in the middle east, and that's certainly not what president bush had as a policy. the united states has firmly established supporting democracy. >> p.j., let me address that directly. >> let me address that directly. 30,000 people dead in syria. tens of thousands of people in refugee camps along the borders of syria, all right? there are cross-border military confrontations right now b

be exploited by republicans against the democrats going into november. >> well, i do think that since dan senor is a topped a adviser to paul ryan i expect them to bring up the middle east. the question here is, what do you understand happened in the immediate aftermath because we're talking about initial reports. clearly, governor romney was kind of confused in his first responses, too, and his first response to the cameras wasn't successful. hasn't been held through in terms of his tone or attitude afterwards. susan rice speaking soon after the event and it was incredibly messy situation. but more concretely about the whole arab spring and the whole approach there, what would you do differently? are they really proposing full-scale war in syria? no, they want something to be different but they cannot really articulate what that would be. in libya, they took a different approach in getting involved in the first place, governor romney thought that would be mission creep. it comes down to specifics. foreign policy what risks are you prepared to take? what are you on national security priorities?
his advisers dan senor but didn't get in any trouble but a big distinction. the romney camp saying this administration has gone soft, sent certain signals to iran and has not been close enough to b.b. netanyahu and israel and the vice president saying very forcefully we have the toughest sanctions and we, not the bush administration, have the diplomatic credibility to get russia and china engaged and to finally get the world to back us on sanctions. >> i interviewed governor romney several weeks ago and he said we ought to continue the crippling sanctions in place, should have been in place sooner. critical of the administration coming into office saying that we ought to try to engage iran diplomatically, should have backed the green revolution there, so obviously there's a difference of an approach to iran. a more hardline approach that you get from governor romney. to what end is not clear. set a different red line than this administration. we don't know the answer to that. look, president bush, president obama, and a president romney would all say we will not allow iran to acqui
security issues, his tutor, his minder is dan senor. he's the flak that lied about the state of the situation during the occupation of iraq. this guy giving ryan cliff notes that he regurgitated not well and couldn't improvise beyond the talking points he had. the simplest questions that penetrate that, he didn't have an answer. >> i thought paul ryan was confused and didn't realize what his words meant. my take on it changed when i went back and looked at that tape of dan just before the debate saying the exact same thing. what does it mean to have as their on purpose not screwing it up strategy that they are going to leave in 2014 the way the president wants to and leaving in 2014 is a mistake and saying we will live in 2014 is a mistake. >> it's like everything. there's no basis to it. it's the shards of the bush years. they take whatever obama is doing and they make it slightly more truck lent. there's no details. they have like a gold berg contraption about leaving afghanistan. it makes to sense but they were trying to find some desperate distinction from the policy in p
of his surrogates from marco rubio to the other foreign policy advisors, dan senor, were not attacking the notion of talking with iran. they did say and have said before that the president was not supportive enough of the students in the green revolution, but they did not really come out attacking. bruce, what about back channels to iran? you've been involved in some of those in the past. >> we are seeing signs that the sanctions imposed by the united states and the world community are having a real impact in iran now. the economy of iran is in serious free-fall. that's all good news. this is what we wanted to see happen. this is what our israeli ally wanted to see happen as well. if that means the iranians are now finally prepared to come to the table, that's good news. but i think anyone who has ever been engaged in negotiations with the iranians will tell you be careful, keep a good eye on your pocket, because the iranians are going to try to do everything they can to stall and to try to get as much out of you as they possibly can. but i think overall, the notion that iran is now se
university are the ish yous to be voted on. they're important issues. i talked to stephanie cutter and dan senor this morning. they're interested in talking about afghanistan and libya, particularly the romney campaign and talking about iran, this report out of t"the new york time times". will an undecided voter vote on the issue tonight? that remains to be seen, toure. >> it remains to be seen how many watch the debate. the candidates are seated at a table together, so they don't have the physical confront tragss that they had last time it's 90 minutes on foreign policy. how much of an impact do you think a 90-minute foreign policy debate can make on the election at this point? >> it's a good point, krystal. you have "monday night football" on and game seven of a national league world series. these are huge chunks of american people watching those things. i think people are interested and engaged generally in the race. it does represent the last time we talk about the conventions and the three debates as the only time the whole country sits, stops and watches the campaign. this is the las
. 17 of 24 served in the bush administration. dan senor was the spokesman in baghdad for the war in iraq. the campaign tapped condoleeza rice to give the foreign policy address at the convention this year. they have since followed that up with campaign trail photo ops for the candidates standing with condoleeza rice. dick cheney himself has been holding fundraisers for the romney campaign and not just during the primaries. he's due to hold another fundraiser this thursday in dallas. mitt romney and paul ryan both supported the war in iraq. they say it was not a mistake. how do you convince the country to put a republican in the white house without also making the case that you would be different than george bush? that you at least have a new and improved approach to foreign policy. the romney campaign has tried to avoid the issue during this campaign to the point that the candidate did not even mention the war we are in during his acceptance speech at his convention. but tonight the questions will finally be unavoidable and george bush's record, if not his name, will hang over ev
, because our first read team noted that that would be the theory. dan senor was on "morning joe" and said there was no difference in the withdrawal from afghanistan. that they supported the 2014. why the big surprise this morning? >> well, it's really interesting. through the whole debate there was a convergence in a lot of ways of the president's policies and what governor romney was saying. i was surprised by the talk around afghanistan, and i think a lot of people were. that this was a policy long held, that the romney camp cited the withdrawal was a good thing. to change that in the debate was an interesting pivot. >> dan said it on "morning joe." he said there was no difference. i want to play the moment during the debate that was such a stunner. >> we're going to be finished by 2014, and when i'm president, we'll make sure we bring our troops out by the end of 2014. >> so what were his other options? could he say i think we're going to stay there another 10, 15 years and really think he would get in the white house with this war-wary country. >> he did back off on this -- call for a
